COMING SOON: LIMITS ON EMPLOYERS’ USE OF CRIMINAL CONVICTION RECORDS, EQUAL PAY REGISTRATION, AND EXTENDED PANDEMIC MEASURES
Jan 20, 2021
Last week the Illinois legislature passed two bills that may significantly impact many employers. If signed, SB 1480 will limit the use of criminal conviction records in employment decisions and create requirements for some private employers to obtain equal pay registration certificates. HB 4276 will extend several pandemic-related provisions enacted last year to give greater access to workers’ compensation benefits and certain public employee death or disability benefits.
